The ancient city of Petra is reached after a mile-long walk from the entry gate. We were keen to explore as much as we could while we were there and so over two days we ended up visiting three times. All in all, there was a lot of walking involved.

Hard to imagine how the ancient people carved these huge buildings out of the rocks.
